Throughout his worldwide travels, Toby stayed mostly in hostels and Airbnb homes. It was from these experiences that he learned first-hand what travelers are looking for and expecting from a host during their stay.  As a result of his western U.S. trip, he started Cajun Stays. As he traveled, he received many more requests from travelers to stay at his place. Over the years, he has obtained several properties and made many connections both in and out of the Acadiana area.  He is passionate about traveling, and providing other fellow travelers with an amazing experience.
